Every artist has a unique style. Choose the right artist for your project by carefully reviewing their portfolio.

Ben Ervin is a traveling tattoo artist and illustrator. 

Tattooing since 2009, he first fell in love with art through comic books and heavy metal album covers. He spent his teenage years creating concert flyers and skateboard graphics, which eventually lead to an exposure to tattoo culture. From here, he saw the potential to create bold, striking imagery that will last a lifetime.

Ben likes to use nature-based imagery with influences of anatomical illustration, Nordic symbolism, and the esoteric. His goal with tattooing is to use unique line work and graceful composition to create images that are fresh and full of personality, yet timeless.

Ben’s Custom Tattoo Process

To book an appointment with Ben, please email STARBEARSIX@gmail.com or complete the contact form below with a description of what imagery you want, where you’d like to put your tattoo, and how big you’d like it to be.

From here, we will set up a consultation appointment for you to come by the shop, sit down and sketch out ideas for your piece. There is no charge for this part of the process.

Once we have discussed the specific details of the design and we are on the same page, we will set a date for you to come in for your tattoo. A $50 deposit is required to secure your appointment. This amount comes off the final cost of the piece.

For additional information, or if you are ready to request a consultation, contact Ben.

Availability & Pricing

Rate: ~ $120/hour
Minimum: 1 hour ($120)

Ben usually books out about 3-5 months for tattoo work. Each piece is unique, requiring varying amounts of detail and time to complete. On average, he charges a rate of $120 per hour. This can change due to tattoo placement and imagery choices.

A deposit (usually $50) will be required at the end of your consultation to start the process and book tattoo appointments. The deposit is non-refundable but goes towards the price of your tattoo.  Ben will give you a rough estimate for the price of your tattoo at your consultation.

For additional information, or if you are ready to request a consultation, contact Ben.
